  • What a wonderful place for the family. Took our daughter this past weekend four me and my wife's anniversary stayed at rolling view loop b number 2. So quiet and wonderful views. Trails are amazing so much to do and the swimming area is really good they even have life jackets hanging for the little ones that aren't the best swimmers yet so mom friendly. And everyone was so nice. We are for sure going back thinking before school starts back. If you love the real nature this is one you got to go see and experience your self to see. You will love it.
  • This was a great campground. Not too crowded, no one bothered anyone. Saw a few rangers drive by. The thing I liked the least was the bath house had showers that were the times ones. You have to push it in, the water runs and eventually you have to push the thing in again to get the water to run. Not terrible, just a little inconvenient. Wonderful lake access right down the road. There were beautiful deer. We had a great time!
